We're still awaiting word on what film Tom Brady and friends piled in to see. A hasty newsroom poll generated votes for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal suggested "Nebraska," a tender father-and-son road trip narrative shot in black-and-white across the American countryside.
UPDATE: Gregg was way off. Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports that Belichick selected "Lone Survivor," a Mark Wahlberg vehicle that tells the story of four Navy SEALs dueling with a rash of al-Qaeda operatives.
The Patriots aren't alone. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that the film, by Peter Berg, a friend of "The Rich Eisen Podcast," has been seen by, among others, the Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Cleveland Browns, Carolina Panthers and the University of Alabama football team.
